In preparation for my Sony prc-600 - convert to epub

Hi all,

I am in the process striping the drm from my ereader (.pdb) files. I will be converting to epub. I plan on likely getting a sony prc-600

Does the device the book is going to end up on really matter when doing the conversion to epub? i.e. are there any settings I should change?

Under Preferences --> Conversion, I have selected the output profile of Sony Reader. Should I be picking this?

Do I need to select anything for the input profile? The pdb files (bought from fictionwise) end up as html after removing the drm.

Is there anything else I should change, or does it just work 'out of the box'.

Thanks.

I think that it should work fine with the settings you mentioned. But I would hold of converting everything just yet. Convert a book to ePub and convert a book to the LRF format load them to your 600 and see what looks best to you. Personally I prefer how LRF files look on my Sony compared to ePub files. Others have the opposite opinion. Experiment with all the options that Calibre offers and when you find what works best for you then convert all your books.
